Impacts of Changes in Key EU Policies on Trade and Production Displacement of Sugar and Soy
This study aims to identify the major foreseeable impacts of prospective changes in key EU policies on global production and trade for some selected agricultural products. It also aims to identify potential mechanisms and opportunities to influence this displaced production in order to reduce its environmental impacts, in particular those related to freshwater and forest conservation. The paper concentrates on the main probable changes in production and trade patterns in developing countries, with a special focus on Brazil. In terms of products, the paper focuses on four main products - sugar, soy, beef and pigmeat - giving particular attention to sugar and soy.
